SC1: Field Update

(Via: James Willamor)

Our sister site FITSNews has a big post up on this, but the field for the South Carolina first congressional district continues to evolve.

According to our sources, Charleston County councilman Elliott Summey is considering a bid – as is S.C. senator Chip Campsen.

We are told Campsen will only run, however, if former governor Mark Sanford – who has represented this district since 2013 – declines to challenge Democrat Joe Cunningham in 2020.

Also, Charleston GOP chairman Larry Kabrovsky has reportedly expressed an interest in the seat, as has defense analyst Tom Perez – who briefly ran for this seat prior to being deployed to Afghanistan.

Meanwhile Larry Grooms, another state senator, is reportedly going to take a pass on running for this seat as he would be required to give up his seat in the Senate.

As FITSNews reported yesterday, Grooms, Katie Arrington, Mark Sanford, Catherine Templeton, Nancy Mace, Tom Davis and Beaufort County treasurer Maria Walls are among those being touted for this seat.
